Rocky S2V Provision Jacket

Rocky S2VProvision Jacket That Includes the S2V Essentials Kit

As any outdoor enthusiast knows, your clothing is your first line of defense against the elements. Clothing is shelter against the cold, rain and snow and not having the right outer layer can spell disaster.

One major drawback with a heavy outer coat though, is the bulky nature of many of them and some people may not be properly protected because of this fact. Some may choose a more flexible coat even though it provides less protection over a bulkier though warmer out layer. However, the makers of the Rocky S2V Provision Jacket are way ahead of the pack when it comes to mobility that also combines essential protection from the cold, rain and snow. The S2V Provision Jacket has articulated patterning for mobility with a durable water repellent coating.

More on Articulated Patterning

Essentially articulated body protection is designed to protect an individual with padding and yet allow freedom of movement. How this is done and applied to the S2V Jacket is quite simple really. The maker’s of the S2V designed the protective layers to protect against the elements by allowing the padding (protection layers) to mold to, and move with the body. Bulky traditional patterns do not move well and thus restricts movement. The articulated design allows for protection and mobility making it perfect for a protective outer layer for cold weather adventures.

Getting wet in cold temperatures will dramatically increase your chances of hypothermia even if the temperature is above freezing and in particular if there is even the slightest wind or breeze.

Your face and neck are protected from the cold with a micro fleece laminated chin guard that again allows for a greater range of head/neck movement. When bundled up in the wrong bulky jacket your head movement is restricted and can reduce your range of vision.

Keep in mind your neck has arterial veins (blood from the heart to the brain) that must be protected from the cold to prevent chilling of the blood that will reduce core body temperature quickly.

Anyone that has spent any amount of time outside in the snow or cold knows the value of water resistant clothing. With the S2V Provision Pants you can kneel in the snow or on damp ground without worrying about the cold or moisture wicking through to your skin. You can also sit down in damp or cold areas knowing you are protected.

One of the biggest dangers of being outside is body to ground contact. Without proper insulation between you and the cold ground your body will conduct heat into the ground accelerating hypothermia. Simply put you need insulation between you and the ground at all times, whether simply kneeling, squatting, sleeping or sitting.

Having laminated and waterproof pockets means you can safely store maps or documents and still have them accessible as you hike or move about. Their specially designed pockets can also be used to protect any media devices you may have such as smart phones or GPS systems. You can see a full line of Rocky S2V Outdoor apparel at RockyS2V.com
